Great potential

Showing its age. Needs a facelift. The service was excellent, the food was good although we ordered the most expensive item on the lunch menu (seafood serendipity) and it way too highly seasoned with black pepper.

When I heard we were going to His Lordships for buffet I was not enthused because most buffets has a lot of fried foods dripping in sweet sauces. But I was amazed at the quality of the various choices. Fresh vegetables and real mashed potatoes and so many great choices. Chef Garcia you certainly know how to cook. I actually... More

This is an example of a restaurant with a great location and views of the bay that has not kept their kitchen up to par. Soggy fried calamari, poorly seasoned food and average service make this unworthy of the view.

H's Lordships has captured what dinning out on a holiday is all about. They have beautiful scenery of the San Francisco Bay. Very attentive servers and a buffet stocked with every kind of entrée you might what. There is crab, shrimp, sushi, roast beef, turkey, ham, omelets, and a pasta bar. There are side dishes galore and the desert bar... More

This was my first Thanksgiving away from home and the incredible food and staff made me feel like i was right back with my family. The Prime Rib was delicious, the sushi bar was exquisite and the fantastic service from Sherry really brought it all together. I look forward to seeing you all next year, five stars all around!

My friend and I had dinner at Hs Lordships. We were placed by the window overlooking the water and the Bay Bridge. As we we were being seated the sun was setting, what a beautiful view we had. Our waitress, Priscilla was excellent. I had the Shrimp and Rib Eye Steak Scampi Surf and Turf with vegetables and scalloped potatoes.... More

Hs Lordships provides the most remarkable view along with delicious food. A spacious restraunt and welcoming staff uplift the ambiance and make dining a complete experience. The seafood is cracking. The herbed salmon was a real party for the taste buds. Do not miss the lipsmacking, all time classic: fish n chips. This experience was worth a 5.

The views of this restaurant are breathtaking! Unfortunetly, the decor inside is quite dated. The food was average. The service was excellent and attentive.
